6 Important Car Safety Tips To Remember Every Day

Car safety is one of the top priority for parents when they’re carting their children around town and even when their kids become old enough to drive themselves. It is important for parents to be completely aware and undistracted on the road. In today’s fast-paced society, it’s far too…

Tips For Getting Girls Into Sports

Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …

A Valid Way to Find More Mom Friends

Are you a mom who wishes she had more mom friends? I was too, until I found mom.life – an app just for moms. I was feeling pretty lonely as my husband works long, tiring hours about an hour away. I was pregnant when I first found this app. It used to be known as Preggie, but with a new app design came a new name - and so was born Mom.Life.

I really had nobody to really talk to as a mom. I didn’t…

Finding friend time again

I'm a little bummed. I got a text from a faraway friend who is going to be in my city next week, but it happens to be on a day I will not be around. It is one of those spontaneous meetings that just didn't work out and I am trying to take comfort in the fact that I will see her again in a few months for our twice-a-year gals getaway.…

The friends we drift away from

My son is at the peak of his imagination game years - the years in which your best friend is the person who will pretend to be a Pokemon with you and then join into a fight with Bowser that is filled with explosions. (Side note: Children would make excellent improv artists, except that they have difficulty taking suggestions from outsiders.)…

Making the case for regular friendships

My son has an ever-rotating list of people whom he calls his best friend. One week it is a certain child in his class, the next week it is the kid who waits at the bus stop with him and then the week after that it will be someone in his scouts pack. For the most part, I am fine with this: As long as he is nice to everyone that is enough basis for a friendship for a seven-year-old.…

Spending time with others

Because my son is an only child, he tells me that he gets "bored" and "lonely" quite frequently on the weekends. I am not sure if this is a result of him being an only child or not, as it generally happens after his screentime is up and he is unsure of what he wants to do next.…

The types of friends we keep

Every night at dinner, I ask my son about his favorite part of the day. Sometimes he will tell me about a class; usually he will tell me about lunch or recess. When I ask him who he played with, I've noticed that the names of who he counts as his "best friend" varies from week to week.…

Spending too much time alone

Like most parents, sometimes I just want to be left alone. You know, just for a few minutes. Long enough to read a few emails, or take a bath or write a blog post. But, I think most parents wish to be left alone because we all know that it is a short-term situation. Eventually, we will be surrounded by loud noises and chaos and faces with peanut butter on them.…

Will my real friends please stand up?

When we are children, life is simple: We divide our lives into things we like and things we don't like. Candy is wonderful; vegetables are not. Summer fun is the best thing ever; school is a chore that is dealt with. People we know are either friends or not friends.



It turns out that last one is still true…

Who do you think is lonely?

Pause for a moment to take stock of your family and friends. Do you think that anyone you know is lonely? Did you know that you are probably right?



Social isolation isn't good for us - numerous studies have shown that…

Who are they talking to?

By now, I think I have mentioned that my son is a talker enough times that I will have to apologize to him when he turns into a teenager for labeling him that way. (I'm not wrong, by the way,…

Hanging out with the other butterflies

Recently, my coworkers and I watched a TED Talk by Susan Cain around the power of introverts. After the talk, we all took a quiz to determine where we fell on the introvert - extrovert spectrum. It was fun to see who was a full-blown introvert and who was more of an extrovert.…

Putting your trust in your nose

Just like my mother, I have a sensitive nose (thanks, Mom!) I can smell all the smells - the good, the bad and the ugly. Because of this, I tend to avoid people who wear too-strong perfume or aftershave, and my very sweet husband seeks out my opinion before changing personal hygiene products to ensure they won't bother me (thanks, Love!).…

Life Lesson #5- Girlfriends

One of the things that I’ve learned since becoming a parent, is just how easy it is to lose touch with your friends. And that’s a mistake. The happiest people I know are the ones who maintained their friendships, and made them a priority in their lives. Girlfriends supply a much needed support system, and make drinking vast amounts of wine socially acceptable ;)…

The secret to happiness (for men)

My son likes to tell me when he is not happy. If I take him to a store, I hear "But that doesn't make me happy." If I tell him to clean up his toys, I hear, "That makes me so sad." He is five: Happiness is getting to do whatever he wants when he wants.



I used to think that happiness depended on the person -…

When friendships change

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch.…

In case of emergency

When I was in my mid-20s, I learned that a friend of mine had listed me as her emergency contact. Thankfully, I didn't learn this information during an actual emergency. Rather, after hanging out one night she admitted that it was hard being far away from family, and even though she lived with her boyfriend, she had me listed as her emergency contact on all her forms.…
